My body must be among the driest of skin types.  My dry skin gets itchy in winter.  In some water types, such as when I'm traveling from state to state, the water will leave me so dry that I have intense nearly unbearable itching and can't get lotion on quick enough to satisfy my skin's greediness for hydration.  I'm so pleased to tell you that there is a solution to this problem, found in the cruelty free Body Therapy Essentials set, ($25), from Dermalogica that I recently received.  Softer silkier skin is now as easy as 1, 2, 3!

The Body Therapy Essentials kit is one of the special sets put together for your Holiday 2014 gift shopping.  Pamper a friend, (but don't forget to pamper yourself!), with the aromatheraputic spa type experience gift sets.  Any of the suggesting gift giving ideas and sets will make a wonderful experience for your family, friend, boss...or even a beloved blogger, (lol).

Dermalogic was begun with a clear goal in mind.  From the website, (the emphasis is mine):  "The vision was clear – a product line free of common irritants and ingredients that could cause breakouts (including lanolin, SD alcohol, mineral oil, artificial colors and fragrances) that would improve skin health, and were only available from qualified skin care professionals trained at The International Dermal Institute." 


So here comes the review:  As I stated before, this set is as easy as 1, 2, 3 to achieve softer skin, even in a dry winter!

1.  Cleanse, (pictured at the left):  the Conditioning Body Wash is a clear fluid and it smells WONDERFUL!!!  To start the three part process, apply the Conditioning Body Wash and work into a lather.  Rinse off.  The body wash has a natural scent from the combined ingredients and is definitely a unisex smell.  It is light and doesn't linger, and is clean and fresh.  The cleanser is soap free, acid balanced and infused with purifying essential oils to prevent over drying.

Ingredients in the body wash are:
Water/Aqua/Eau, Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, Disodium Laureth, Sulfosuccinate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Chloride, Cetyl Betaine, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Butylene Glycol, Quaternium-75, Quillaja Saponaria Bark Extract, Sodium PCA, Glycol Distearate, Steareth-4, Panthenol, Methyl Gluceth-20, Santalum Album (Sandalwood) Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Lavandula Hybrida Oil, Amyris Balsamifera Bark Oil, Cedrus Atlantica Bark Oil, Salvia Sclarea (Clary) Oil, Pogostemon Cablin Oil, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Disodium EDTA, Linalool, Ethylhyexylglycerin, Limonene, Phenoxyethanol.  

2.  Scrub, (center):  One to two times a week, it's important to exfoliate your skin to remove the dry outer cells and make room for the new softer ones to rise to the surface.  Apply this scrub, work into a lather, and rinse.  The creamy lightly foaming body scrub exfoliates to dramatically smooth without hurting your skin.  Same great scent similar to the body wash.

Water/Aqua/Eau, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Polyethylene, Glycerin, Zea Mays (Corn) Cob Meal, PPG-2 Hydroxyethyl Coco/Isostearamide, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract, Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Lavandula Hybrida Oil, Amyris Balsamifera Bark Oil, Cedrus Atlantica (Cedarwood) Bark Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Santalum Album (Sandalwood) Oil, Pogostemon Cablin Oil, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia

3.  Body Hydrating Cream. (left in picture):  This is my favorite part.  The cream is amazing.  Lotions don't do much for me, so I don't use them.  My skin needs cream to drink the moisture in.  This one immediately soaks into the skin.  It doesn't ride on top like a lot of body creams do.  You can put your clothes on immediately!!  It has a similar unisex, delightful aroma to it as the body wash.  It ALWAYS leaves my skin feeling soft and not one bit itchy!!  "Lactic and hydroxy acids in this advanced moisturizer immediately smooth and condition skin while essential plant oils soothe and soften" your skin.

I give my highest recommendation to these products. A lot of different body creams have been in my employ over my lifetime, but I've never before had a cream that just absorbed into my skin without the feeling of heaviness on the surface.   I'd like to invite you to cruise the Dermalogica website and especially keep the idea of gift giving in your mind.


Look for Dermalogica at Nordstrom and use your ten point day to earn more Nordy notes!!!!  You can use your reward points and purchase at Ulta.com!  And, of course, on the Dermalogica website.

I.  Can't.  Stop.  Smelling.  These.  Products!!!!!!
